WHY ARE YOU FOLLOWING WITH YOUR CONTENT MARKETING?
Big changes in the way we communicate with our potential customers are happening faster and faster. It used to take decades for trends to shift, and now we’re seeing big disruptions every year…
The content marketing formulas, blueprints, and tactics that worked even just a couple of years ago are becoming less and less effective.
Patterns are shifting. Customers are more savvy. Technology is changing.
And just when you find a formula that works, it plateaus.
The reason the formulas aren’t working for you is because you didn’t get here by following a formula.
As an entrepreneur, you’re naturally a risk taker, a trail blazer, and an innovator. You’re obviously smart and good at what you do, or you would never have gotten here in the first place.
Right now you might be looking for someone to lead you, to show you how to apply the next marketing tactic to your business…
I hate to break it to you, but you are the leader. You have to blaze your own trail.
The good news is that content marketing still works, but you have to innovate to create real traction.

Or, how do I create content consistently and sustainably?
And I understand where this question comes from. As business owners, we have more channels than ever on which we can distribute our content — but that means it feels like we’re constantly in content debt to those channels, owing them something new, something deep and meaningful, something witty and smart.
It’s exhausting! And it can be easy to burn out.
I’ve seen it so many times …
Like anything worth doing, it pays to have a PLAN for your content marketing before you start creating content — and a blog content calendar for your business can be exactly that plan, a roadmap to help you create content that actually helps move you toward your business goals.
What is a blog content calendar?
Let’s start at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start.
A blog content calendar is exactly what it says on the tin: a calendar that helps you see and plan exactly what content you will …
Engagement is the holy grail of content marketing. But it may not always be what we think.
I remember hearing an influencer say that her “metric” when writing posts was that she wanted someone to comment and say:
If she got a comment like that (or more than one) she knew she’d done her job.
She measured her success by engagement — but not just any old engagement, not just views or likes, but an expression from someone that she had touched them, that she’d touched a nerve, that she’d touched something …
When I ask what people struggle with most with content marketing CONSISTENCY is always one of the top challenges people name.
People always want me to tell them how often they should be blogging, how long their blogs should be, how often they should email their list, how much they should be posting to social media…
And I think the REAL question they want to ask is,
“What’s the minimum I can get away with?”
But that’s the wrong question.
I’m NOT going to tell you exactly how many …
